This is one of a series of interviews completed by the Milton Historical Society (http://miltonhistoricalsociety.ca) as part of the production of the book "Milton Remembers WWII 1939-1945". Several veterans of Milton and the surrounding community were interviewed by MHS staff to document their experiences in Milton, their service to Canada in WWII and the impact that this had on their life. This is the interview of Mike Ledwith who served with the Royal Canadian Navy and the British Royal Navy in England. Although destined to serve in the Far East the war ended before his tour of duty began. The interview was conducted by Ken Lamb, probably in the fall of 1993.
